Recovering Data After Ubuntu Upgrade Formatted My Hard Drive

by Robert S. Barnes   Last Updated October 28, 2018 09:02 AM

I just ran an upgrade from 14.04.5 to 16.04.5, and instead of upgrading, it formatted the hard drive and did a fresh install.

Beyond my extreme bewilderment how a massive bug like this could escape notice, I now need to try and recover as much data from this drive as I can.

Are the any open source tools in Ubuntu which I can use to recover my data, or can someone recommend a third party tool that can handle ext3/ext4 data recovery?
